Baby On Your Six

What's In a Name?

It's been requested that I explain what this little corner of the 'net's name means by someone largely influential and inspirational to it's content - DrummerWife herself. So, since she asked so nicely, I'll explain it here.

It goes a little something like this - if I were a fighter pilot, and in a dogfight, and an enemy plane got into the blind spot immediately behind me, it could be said that I had a "bogey on my six". "Bogey" being the term for the enemy plane, and "my six" being a reference to the face of a clock, whereby I am the pin in the middle. Directly in front of me is my 12 o'clock, to my right is my 3 o'clock, to my left the 9 o'clock, and immediately behind me is my 6 o'clock. So...the bogey is on my 6.

Well, this waste of bandwidth's name is derived from that expression. I have a baby on my six. It's closing in fast, and there's really very little I can do to shake it. :)

I don't really know you, but I have been following this story from day one and I think you are totally awesome and should be writing your own book. I am Tracey's aunt and that is how I started this read and have continued to check back from time to time to see how you are doing. Like I said this is a book in the making.
